Fulton County Audit Set To GO FORWARD


This is just the first step.

According to reports, Judge Brian Amero has ruled that an investigation into the nearly 150,000 absentee ballots cast in Fulton County Georgia will proceed.

It is unclear at this time what path the audit will take moving forward, as the defense, and the mainstream media are trying to argue that most of the lawsuits are now dismissed, meaning there will be no Georgia audit.

This is contrary to what both Judge Amero and other sources claim—mainly that Garland Favorito has secured a victory and the investigation into the ballots will continue.

Sources also point out that Favorito will be submitting a plan of action in order for the audit, and further inspection of ballots to have a framework to follow.

Take a look through these reports to get a better understanding of the situation:

The MSM outlet NBC reported:

A judge on Thursday allowed a lawsuit alleging fraud in Georgia’s most populous county during the November election and seeking a review of absentee ballots to move forward.

Originally filed in December, the lawsuit says there is evidence of fraudulent ballots and improper ballot counting in Fulton County. The county, county elections board and county courts clerk had filed motions to dismiss the lawsuit. They argued, among other things that the the lawsuit was barred by sovereign immunity, a principle that says state and local governments and can only be sued if they agree to it.

After holding a hearing on those motions Monday, Henry County Superior Court Chief Judge Brian Amero, who was specially appointed to preside over the case, agreed. He ruled that the constitutional claims against those three entities are barred by sovereign immunity and dismissed them. But he also granted a request by the petitioners to add the individual members of the county election board as respondents in the lawsuit instead.

Becker News added:

“That litigation is finished,” said Don Samuel, a prominent Atlanta attorney hired by the Fulton elections board. “Is there going to be an audit? Not right now … There’s no discovery permitted. There’s no lawsuit pending anymore.”

This is not exactly the case, as the judge’s order makes clear. The claimant Garland Favorito argued that the ruling contained a victory.

“Favorito plans to submit a ballot inspection plan next week based on the judge’s order in May to unseal absentee ballots, allowing for high-resolution re-scans of ballots and an in-person review,” AJC noted.

“We just want Fulton to be held responsible,” Favorito said. “We could be moving forward any time now unless they try to stall again. Fulton may make a new desperation move to postpone it.”
